Item description for Tiger Men (Asian Portraits) by Barry Petersen...

Twenty-five years after he left Vietnam and his Montagnard tribesmen, Australian Barry Petersen wrote this thoughtful story of his life among the Rhade and other ethnic groups of Darlac province in the Vietnam highlands. He went there to train and lead the local people to defend their villages form the Viet-Cong. This is the story of the Truong Son, 'Tiger Men', who became the most respected and feared self-defense force in Vietnam. But it also the sad story of their susequent defeat and the desctructionof their Montagnard villages, culture and way of life as much due to the Vietnamese and American generals and politicians as to the Viet-Cong. This is a book that the CIA would rather not see in print.

Reviews - What do customers think about Tiger Men (Asian Portraits)?

Straight From The Heart  Jun 21, 2007
Being the first book I've ever read on a young Australian's Vietnam War experiences, I was struck by his ability to recount his extraordinary experiences in such an intimate manner. Possessing some back-ground knowledge on the events of the period covered in the book, I felt a particular affinity with the writer. No doubt, a professional "ghost-writer" would have portrayed the experiences differently, however, Barry Petersen's "straight-from-the-heart" approach says it all - and very effectively so.
Barry Petersen,Special Forces Soldier,Vietnam.  Oct 29, 2005
Barry Petersen is one of the most fascinating people that I have ever met.My Dad (an ex-soldier) and I drank a lot of beer and heard a lot of stories from Baz,as he was our neighbour.All of them check out,in fact Baz was quite modest about his experiences.
In the official history of Australian Special Forces in Vietnam,Barry is the only person with a chapter to himself.Special Forces soldiers that I have met testify to his skill,bravery and compassion for his private Montagnard army.
This is a riveting account of a little-known part of the Vietnam conflict from a tough,intelligent likeable writer and a brave and modest soldier.
Thoroughly recommended to anyone with an interest in the war and the Vietnamese people.
